Beautiful people can get away with a lot, and if anyone has proven that over the past year, it’s Megan Fox. It seems that every week now, Fox says something so offensive, ignorant or — dare I say — stupid, it’s hard to believe she hasn’t faced any major backlash yet.
Well, let this be a call for that backlash to begin: I am so over you, Megan Fox.
While Fox openly calls herself bisexual, that doesn’t stop her from spreading her bi-phobic views (because that’s really the support we need right now) and, in the July issue of British GQ., letting the lesbian stereotypes fly:
“Really my only job is to look attractive,” Fox told the magazine. “I was so angry about that, that I went in the opposite direction. I turned into a really butch bull dyke for, like, six months … Then I went in the other direction. From being a giant motorcycle-riding lesbian, I turned into a zombie. I lost, like, 30 pounds.”
Do I even need to comment further on that statement? What is wrong with you, Megan Fox? Where do you come from?
This gem of a quote comes just weeks after her brilliant interview with Esquire, where she shared her thoughts on bisexuality, which Dorothy Snarker discussed previously:
While readers vigorously debated Fox’s statement in Snarker’s post, I cannot believe someone who allegedly supports the gay community would say something so stupid! It’s tragic that in a post-Prop 8 America, where Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell doesn’t seem to be going anywhere and where marriage rights refused to queer citizens, someone would openly bash a part of the community they allegedly belong to. Bi-bashing has gotten old, and as much as Fox disdains intellectuals — she should know better.
The GQ comment is one of many Fox has made that has be thinking about what Beth Ditto recently said regarding Katy Perry:
I would like to forward this statement to Megan Fox: We giant motorcycle-riding lesbians don’t need you.
And while you don’t seem to think you are “a retard” (just another example of Fox using that noggin of hers before talking to a major publication) we think you should read a newspaper once in awhile, or at least the magazines you are quoted in. Then maybe you will see how you really sound.
Sure, she’s kind of hot, but I voted for Portia de Rossi over her in the Hot 100 for many reasons. Being hot only gets you so far.
